We had a rear kitchen on our first rig. Had a small problem initally with a couple of broken items which, in hindsight, was probably due to novices doing the packing.
As far as missing the view from a large window with a rear living room, that is true...when there is a view and we have had some beauties. But many times our 'view' is somebody else's rig on the other side of the road and we end up leaving the shade down.
If what you're looking at feels right, get it!
